"Could a werewolf be killing the unicorns?" Harry asked.
"These birds... they can't be here just for decoration," said Hermione.
"Always the innocent are the first victims," he said. "So it has been for ages past, so it is now."
Harry nodded, but stopped quickly, because it made his head hurt. Then he said, "Sir, there are some other things I'd like to know, if you can tell me... things I want to know the truth about...."

Harry and Ron didn't talk much. Both of them were thinking about what they were about to do.
"You got there? You got Hermione's owl?"
Harry was almost glad that the exams weren't far away. All the studying he had to do kept his mind off his misery. He, Ron, and Hermione kept to themselves, working late into the night, trying to remember the ingredients in complicated potions, learn charms and spells by heart, memorize the dates of magical discoveries and goblin rebellions....;
